Hate groups have been growing in strength over the past few years and swastikas have started to pop up like never before, so we started to take action and turn these awful swastikas into thought provoking comical patterns.
See below a little piggy win his battle with a swastika
And here a Flamingo, from the #Paint_Unhate set turns a swastika into an adorable cartoon
We created a stencil kit that doesn't just erase swastikas but rather turn them into cartoon animals, #Paint_Unhate turns hate symbols into lovable symbols of compassion. It's our way of subverting hate speech and turning it upside-down
Meet the #Paint_Unhate animals
We're pretty proud of these little guys. All of them are a product of Mysh's amazing mind and talent. They all take the lines of a swastika and turn it into this amazing new creature.
The logic behind #Paint_Unhate
We decided to take on hate globally using this tool. The idea is to be able to turn any graffiti swastika on its head and turn in into something that laughs at hate rather than cover it up. This way anyone who thinks of drawing a swastika will know that sooner or later it will become a cartoon and lose all its impact.
Let's talk about why we're doing this now:
Just look around and you will find these ugly little symbols of hate everywhere. As our world changes around us, we begin to see swastikas crop up more and more. With this tool, you can be ready to tackle swastikas wherever. whenever.

How does Nisnas Industries do product and social action
We focus on the intersection of product and social action. That how we work. We make exquisite whiskey gear and leather products which we make along with our Kickstarter community and once a year we embark on a journey to build a community around a social mission. Two years ago we focused on Wadi Salib in our city of Haifa, to highlight the social struggle there. Today we are taking the message to a global audience and shifting our attention to rising hate in the world but with similar tools.
Design and Humor
The idea is to answer hate with humor. Whenever people who want to spread hate in the world see their handiwork get turned into humorous creations, one more block in the wall of global hate comes loose. We really mean it, if you can #Paint_Unhate on a global scale, you can turn the tide towards a more open, understanding and positive world. Well, at least this is our hope.
Creating a custom sized #Paint_Unhate design
All you need is to download the PDF file and print it out in the size you want. You can blow it up way big or as large as you want depending on your needs.
You can either cut out the design on your own with a pair of scissors or hop over to a friendly laser cutter and cut out the design on a harder PVC or plastic. You can use the PUH kit for any size :)
We partnered with Mysh, a cartoonist and super talented artist to bring our idea to life. Mysh is a political cartoonist and satirist who takes aim at social/political systems locally here in Israel. We share his take on the critical view towards the occupation and the need to end hate locally. Our effort to shine a light on global hate is an extension of our effort to work to end fascist tendencies here in Israel as well. Want to see more from Mysh? Check these out.
Simple, the stencil pack is a clever tool that turns any swastika into a funny funny animal.
You can use the #Paint.Unhate kit on any wall, anywhere you can paint with a spray can you can use #Paint.Unhate. Small, large, crooked, straight, you can paint anywhere any style

Risks and challenges
This is our 12th project here on Kickstarter and we have most of this process down. There is always a chance that something will go wrong but this is a stencil pack so we can pretty much guarantee that we will have the pack done as described on time. If there are any delays we will of course let folks know. in 12 projects we have always delivered and we dont see any reason for this project to be any different.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
